EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL MOTION CORRELATION OF A PIPE-LAYING BARGE
Motions of a column-stabilized pipe-laying barge are theoretically predicted and compared with model measurements. Various effects for instance coupling and damping, have been considered in the theory. It is shown that a satisfactory agreement between the measured motions in the model basin and the theoretically predicted ones exists, when coupling effects and damping, in particular for the resonance frequencies, are taken into account.
